Few photographic opportunities are as rich as a trip to the pumpkin patch. More and more farmers have caught on to the concept of agritainment, turning their workaday corn fields into full-blown fall festivals complete with 10-acre corn mazes (or "maizes," of course), hayrides, pumpkin picking, apple-picking, huge slides, pony rides, carnival games, food vendors and more.

With so many hallmarks of fall, there are almost too many great opportunities to take terrific photos: your little guy or gal lugging an oversized pumpkin; ruddy cheeks warming up with apple cider; sitting on Grandpa's shoulders to reach the perfect apple; emerging victorious from the corn maze; bouncing along on the hay ride; sitting atop an old-fashioned tractor; falling asleep in the car clutching an ear of Indian corn; the list goes on.

Most fall farm festivals run for the whole month leading up to Halloween, so get out there on a crisp, sunny day and don't forget the camera at home!
